Wellsboro, Pa .– Alpha and Charlie were found on Tuesday afternoon, August 31, 2021, around 4 p.m. in upper Baldwin Run Road by Keystone Clearwater Solutions employee Tim Yarish.
Tim saw a poster of the missing dogs along Baldwin Road before meeting the two dogs at Seneca’s pound, One Pad, in that area. Yarish was quite surprised to meet the dogs so quickly as they walked through the parking lot of the gas station. Tim Yarish stopped his truck and called the two dogs. However, Tim noticed that Alpha was limping so he got food and water and brought it to the two very happy dogs.
Yarish checked Alpha (the German Shepherd) and noticed that the dog had all four injured paws. At that point, Yarish carefully loaded Alpha into his work truck and Charlie just hopped in and was ready for a ride. Tim returned to the area where he had seen the missing dogs poster to see if there was a phone number he could call. That’s when Tim Yarish called the dog’s owner Daniel Ebling and told him the good news. Yarish also informed the company he worked for and provided him with an update on the dogs found.
The start of this story dates back to Friday morning August 27, 2021, when Alpha and Charlie took to the wilderness when Eling’s young children opened the door to the camp where the family were vacationing along Baldwin Run Road in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania.
The two dogs were last seen on Friday afternoon. Then it was as if they had just disappeared. There were no sightings of the two dogs throughout the weekend and no sightings on Monday, as rescuers searched the area. Rescuers even left a food station for the two dogs, but the dogs never stopped, causing pet owners and rescuers to fear the worst had happened.
During the search, Lori Ranck and fellow pet rescuer Lynda Barron combed almost every inch of the hilltop from Badwin Run Road to Asaph and saw nothing. Ranck had spoken to a number of gas workers circulating along Baldwin Run Road and asked them to keep an eye out for the two dogs. The company informed its supervisors, who in turn informed their employees of the disappearance of the dogs.
Even a heat-sensing drone was brought in by Ron Warren, Critical Skills Concepts, LLC to help with the search, but the drone did not pick up the dogs in the search area. It was noted that crews from the gas industry had started hydraulic fracturing on Monday morning in the area where the dogs were last seen. Others had also searched everywhere for the two dogs and they too arrived empty-handed.
So imagine the excitement when the Ebling family and children learned from Tim Yarish that their two dogs had been located and were safe. Even rescuers Lori Ranck and Lynda Barron were delighted to receive the wonderful news from Daniel Ebling about the discovery of Alpha and Charlie. Daniel Ebling and his family left Lebanon County and returned to Wellsboro, Pennsylvania to reunite with their beloved dogs.
The family arrived at the Wellsboro Pet Complex at around 7:30 p.m., where they reunited with Alpha and Charlie. Charlie immediately walked over to the family and Alpha slowly stood up from lying down and followed him. Both dogs received lots of hugs and some milk bones from the kids.
The family spoke to rescuers, as well as Tim Yarish and Dr Leonard Kreger. Doc Kreger had just returned to the compound to finish tending to Alpha’s injured paws and had wrapped them after he had ointed them. It is not known for sure if Alpha’s paws were injured while stepping on hot asphalt or in some other way. But his four paws were being groomed by Kreger.
The Ebling family sent their thanks to everyone who played a role in their reunion. Pet rescuers Lori Ranck and Lynda Barron also expressed their thanks to God for another successful pet reunion. After praising God, the duo expressed their gratitude to the personnel of the gas industry who made all their employees aware of the disappearance of the two dogs. Ranck and Barron also expressed their warmest thanks to the local community for calling for comments, and thanked those who shared articles or messages about the two missing dogs.
